2.  Frances Matilda Holland, second child and oldest daughter of Alvin Holland and Mary Ellen Miers, was born 18 February 1853, in Alabama.  She married Henry Nathan Maddux on 1 April 1874, in Calhoun County, Alabama, at the age of 21.  Henry Maddux was born 18 October 1852, in Pike County, Georgia, the son of Benjamin Pryor Maddox (born 1812 in Griffin, Spalding County, Georgia and died 1890 in Cleburne County, Alabama) and Judy Ann Hardin (born 1822 in Georgia and died 1898 in Cleburne County, Alabama). 

It is not a typo that Henry Nathan Maddux's last name is spelled differently from his father's.  According to B. L. and Wilson Maddux, some of their kin that came to Texas and "went on" spelled their name 'Maddox' instead of 'Maddux'.  Records show that Henry Nathan was the only son to spell his name 'ux.'  It is possible that the different spelling derived from a hand-written court or census record that looked like or was recorded as 'ux' rather that 'ox.'  The Maddux family is not my ancestral line so I have not done a lot of research on it.  I do know that the Maddux name has been in Virginia since the 1600's and that the spelling of the name in written records has many forms.  Some comments on the spelling of Maddux are online at http://maverik.rootsweb.com/mcuz/variatio.htm.  It is simply not known why Frances' husband Henry's name is spelled differently from his siblings and father.

Frances Holland's name is sometimes spelled in the masculine form of 'Francis.'  Their marriage certificate in Calhoun County, Alabama, has Henry Mattox and Frances Hollan.  The 1880 census in Calhoun County, Alabama, has Henry Maddux and Francis, as does the 1900 census in Bell County, Texas.  Language was spoken long before it was written, and even as recently as a hundred years ago, spelling was not a precise art to many who recorded names in court records, church records, and especially family Bibles. 

The area in eastern Alabama in which this family was living, was east of Birmingham, in the Talladega and Anniston area. They have records in Talladega, Calhoun, and Cleburne County. Cleburne County borders western Georgia.  I have included a map of Alabama counties to assist in following this family line.

In late 1895, the Frances Holland Maddux family left Alabama, bound for Texas, an approximately 800-mile journey.  The men and older boys left Talladega, Alabama, in an oxen-drawn covered wagon; the women and young children traveled by train and arrived in Holland, Texas, 1 January 1895.

Henry and Frances Maddux had 9 children;  they were all born in Alabama except the last one, Noah, who was born in Texas in 1896.  Henry Maddux died 30 May 1901, in Bell County, Texas, at the age of 48.  Frances died 4 February 1930, in Holland, Bell County, Texas, and was buried in Dallas Cemetery in Bell County.  She was 76.

About this History

My father's people came from Wayne County, North Carolina.  Although I live in Alabama now, I inherited his love of our heritage.  So it is with love for him and admiration for his strong desire to preserve our history that I dedicate my part in compiling and maintaining this Holland Family History and Tree to my father,
